  1. Oh boy, that strike setup. Imagine getting swarmed by twenty-four dive bombers in one go, that’s brutal.

    Still, these are the stock aircraft used by Hiryu, good thing that Kaga has a ton of spare planes because she’ll need them.

  2. Thanks for the information. Regarding the trivia, what is the name of the Dive Bomber pilot that survived the war? His name was left out.


  3. side note : Fuchida also survived the war – he managed to survive sinking of Akagi during Midway battle, but was hurt badly and could not fly anymore. So he spend rest of the war as the Staff oficer – and that’s how he moved to Hiroshima at August 5, 1945. But next day Fuchida received a long-distance phone call from Navy Headquarters asking him to return to Tokyo. The day after the bombing, he returned to Hiroshima with a party sent to assess the damage. All members of Fuchida’s party later died of radiation poisoning, but Fuchida exhibited no symptoms.
    It was one very lucky guy :)

  4. Strike Deck + Air Supremacy = 28 DBs and 8 TBs per sortie. Dear god. Granted they’re tier 6 and 250lb bombs with rather weak damage but still, damn. Would giving them the Evasive Maneuver help with keeping them alive I wonder, they would have some defensive gunner power.


  5. The Strike loadout isn’t bad, however the other build is nice as well, having 5 TB squads with 2 planes each isn’t bad, especially since you can throw torps in various angles that some tops will hit.
    In addition low amount of planes means low servicing time, really good for when you’re about to get overrun. I mean 4.9 sec base servicing time. after landing it takes merely 9.8 seconds for all TB to be ready to launch again. When the Carrier is close to the battle it’s gonna be nasty when you have 10 torp bomers flying towards you every 30 seconds. It’s gonna be a risky playstlye but when you can spam TBs every now and then it’s gonna be gud.

    1. true, 5 Tb squads will allow for nice cross torping tactics against nasty vessels & skilled captains
      but its a hell of a lot more micro managing, I doubt that many players will like that …
      we will see :)


      1. I happily accept the micromanagement if it means that i can get a handfull of unavoidable torpedo attacks off every time my TB attack. 2 TB squads with maybe 5 planes in each is all nice and well, but a skilled enemy can avoid maybe all but 1 miss. On the other hand the 5 squads with 2 planes each will be better since you can attack in multiple directions making avoiding hard so you’re more likely to hit at least 2 or 3


  6. Mr.Ibuki Shoichi will be one of the admiral of the Air Training Command of the Maritime Self Defense Force later.
    And Mitsuo Fuchida’s aircraft is AI-301.
